2 min read

The Charles Warren Center for Studies in American History has announced the recipients of its 2000-01 fellowships. The fellows, who will come to Harvard to spend a sabbatical year writing and conducting research, will concentrate on a core theme: “Global America: Connections between Developments in America and in Other Parts of the Globe.”

Next year’s program will be directed by professors of history Akira Iriye and James Kloppenberg and professor Ernest May of the History Department and the Kennedy School of Government. The fellows will be examining economic, cultural, intellectual, and social relations between the United States and the rest of the world and looking in both directions –- at the impact of other nations and cultures on the United States as well as U.S. impact elsewhere.
